If we sell or merge our company, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law. Compliance with laws.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Amazon Web Services, Sage Pay, Paypal, and Google Cloud are Privacy Shield certified. We would only upload posts (such as photos, comments, etc) on social media with your express permission.
